Paper Straw Patriotic Stars

Paper straws can be used for more than just a festive drink! Celebrate the USA with some fun Red, White and Blue stars using paper straws, pompoms and scrapbook stickers.


Step #1:
Cut two paper straws in half. You need three halves + one full straw to make a patriotic star.

Once the glue has set, insert a bamboo BBQ skewer through the full paper straw.

Add a small piece of tape to the very end of the skewer to hold the straw in place.
